Our Core Values, The 3 Things We Live By
Decoded aims to uplift a community that has been affected by trauma and other barriers that have strained our mental health and quality of life for decades.
Decoded is here to empower those, especially in the African American community, to speak freely about their traumas in a judgement free zone. We advocate for those seeking professional help by providing resources to mental health professionals in the community.
Decoded’s main purpose is to bring awareness to both, the historical and daily traumas that African Americans face, by talking about these challenges and eliminating the stigma behind expressing feelings and seeking help if needed.
